I had an ear infection and tonsillitis four weeks ago

Patient : I had an ear infection and tonsillitis four weeks ago. Prescribed amoxicillin and penicillin v. The pain went within the week, however I am left with a fullness feeling in the affected ear. A bit like it needs to pop but when I do Pop it and I talk, I can hear my voice echoing in my head. If anything, popping my ear makes my hearing worse as all I can hear is my own voice muffled. I am really worried that I have done serious damage to my ear and the hearing won't ever return to normal.
